Revised instructions may have an impact on the level of Medicare Traditional contractual adjustments and Medicare Traditional net patient revenue amounts reported.

Each file consists of a sum of four quarters of data for the calendar quarter ending on the quarter. Files are updated quarterly in order to reflect all corrections made by HCAI audit staff and hospital representatives during the review process. Comparison of previously released data files with revised data files may not have a material effect on statewide aggregations, but may have a significant effect on data for individual hospitals.
